    Posted: 26 Jan 2009 at 12:25am
 
Nothing against eHarmony, I think they go about this stuff in the right way. But they've been showing these ads for some time featuring matched couples, and this Tanyalee chick is clearly their favorite. I see at least two ads with her in for every one of someone else.
 
Something about this woman bothers me. Hair, attitude, cutesy name, the way she sashays across the store (I assume that's what it is) in that goofy outfit, the way she says "when you own your own business..." I don't know what it is. Maybe it's just she's wearing out her welcome, because she and her squeeze, Joshua, appear in several of eHarmony's ads. You can check them out on Youtube.
 
Whatever, she's really getting on my nerves.
 
Just wondering if any of you felt the same way.

I hate her, too. You can tell that she's a HUGE bitch in rl. Joshua must like being on a short leash cuz I'm sure she keeps him on one.

Hadn't thought about that, N-Diz. I completely missed the boat on that cell phone duo--of course, the good folks on CIH had my back on that one.
 
I've assumed Tanyalee (it's irritating even typing that name) is the prototypical too-busy-to-date power woman with her own up-and-coming business (you can see that from the shot of the busy, sprawling, and well-decorated showroom in the commercial). I think, though, if she looked and acted the same way when she was "out and about" as she does in the commercial, that might explain why she needed eHarmony. Wink

Awwwwwwwww.....c'mon now.
She's probably a very nice person. Her new husband seems nice, also - maybe a tad "whupped", but nice. They seem like good kids; she's probably from AlabamaConfused, though.
Some folks work their way through college to achieve success - these folks are probably working their way through the T.V. advertisement industry and Court system, so they can afford to legally change her first name.

Thank you for bringing this up!  I can't STAND this woman, and actually I thought she looked vaguely familiar the FIRST time around in the older commercial where they just show her spooky smile.
 
One thing that particularly bugs me about these is check out the wedding dates.  Some of them date pretty far back...so if you factor in the pre-marriage meeting and relationship before they got engaged/married, it's likely been more than several years since they hooked up on E-Harmony.  That just makes some of these stories doubtful to me; I don't know why because I do think E-Harmony has been around for years, but it just doesn't sit right with me.

The 'wedding dates' bother you? What's wrong with them? Who doesn't fall in lust with the first stranger they meet on the 'Net? And, well...just because one may have gotten 'dragged around the back' of the e-Harmony Cafe and raped, they DO have a responsibility to give that new e-Brat a last name. Having said that, after you've posted all your personal information, provided your credit card numbers, and made your plans for that 'trip to never forget', I would suggest getting married within nine (9) months of the first date (rape); four (4) months if you don't want your family disowning you because of your appearance at the altar...

That was my complaint too, her "business" looks like she runs it out of her apartment like a starving artist. Probably a budding fashion designer. I don't know how she could be so busy she can't possibly be bothered with meeting new people and has the internet do it for her. In the one ad where they show her hubby, he stares at her with this odd expression the entire time she's speaking. You'd think that would come off as romantic, but just the way he does it comes off as crazy.

Also note that for someone who's apparently so busy and successful, she doesn't seem to have employees OR customers. 
 
On a side note, notice how she walks across the floor.  She SWAGGERS in the most annoying fashion!

First of all I would like to say, that Thank Gawd they got rid of the old man, I kept saying to my b/f that he's a friggin turn off for one thing.  They finally got the message and finally used sex to sell their wares like everyone else.  That site originally caters to the Christians.  I don't know if it is still like that but I know when I was looking at their website about 3 years ago and their extensive form you had to fill out it came it was apparent.  Match.com I think has always blown this site away, and that why they have to overkill their commericals..Match.com commercials are more relaxed and easier to follow.

Tanyalee looks like a mega-bitch on wheels.
 
That one where she describes the "connection" with Joshua. There is this annoyingly long pause before she says, "snap"
 
The most annoying thing about this couple is their wedding date. July 7th, 2007! Nothing more annoying than couples that decided to get married on 07/07/07.

Hey, I found a HUGE inconsisteny in Tanyalee's and Joshua's stories!
 
In this one version posted, Tanyalee goes on and on about how having started her own business made her too busy to date.
 
But then the other day I saw another version in which Joshua talked about how "opening the business together was a no-brainer" and it cuts to...voila!  The SAME "store."
 
Hmmm...one might think that these stories aren't real!  Shocked Oh NOOOO!!!

I don't see how anyone can complain about these. They're nice commercials, and Tanyalee is a stone cold fox. And she's a real person. They're a real married couple who met using the website. She's got a MySpace account.

I think you guys just hate eHarmony because it doesn't cater to eccentric hippies like Match/Chemistry.

I'm not a big fan of these commercials, either, but they are far and away more effective than the creepy founder ones!
 
It's hard to convey true love in the span of a few seconds. Even big stars who are happily married usually don't show "chemistry" when they do movies together.
 
As for owning your own business, what BETTER way to meet people?! The woman at our local bike shop was never lacking for admirers, and she's in her mid-40s and newly engaged. Her male business partner too- they run a good shop, and meet hundreds of people.
 
Think of all the coffee shops/delis etc. etc. where the single guys working the counter have it made. Tanyalee's problem is that she runs a store that caters to women. Any guy that goes in there will be buying for A) a significant other or B) himself!! Confused She needs to turn that place into a hardware store.
 
But I digress. Their ads work as long as the couples are indeed real- and why not? Meeting people online isn't as unusual as it used to be. I know many who met this way, even married. And if they did away with those insulting Christian requirements, all the better.

Insulting Christian requirements? You're free to use the alternatives. Nobody is forcing you to use eHarmony. It's nice to have a service for people who aren't atheist douches.

Have fun with Match.com and Chemistry.com so you can meet some eccentric poetry-reading stoner at Starbucks.

If eHarmony is a Christian dating service, then they ought to say so, not dismiss people who put the "wrong" answers down on the application, making them wonder, WTF?? At least J-Date makes it clear that it's a service for Jews.

And since when does atheism = "poetry-reading stoner"? Ermm Does Christianity automatically = judgemental bible-thumper? I'll take the free-thinking "douches"@ Starbucks over the hypocritical, self-branding preachers any day.
 
Sorry, just received yet another religious book from the future-mom-in-law barely an hour ago, so I'm not feeling especially open-minded right now.
